Payoneer is a financial services business that provides online money transfer and e-commerce payment services to its customers. Payoneer is a registered Member Service Provider of MasterCard Incorporated. The company is headquartered in New York City.
Skrill is also an e-commerce business that allows payments and money transfers to be made through the Internet, with a focus on low-cost international money transfers.
The difference is that Skrill works like PayPal and its somehow safer for you than Payoneer if you don’t want your PayPal account to be blocked.
You will then wonder why the title “How to receive PayPal Money in Nigeria Using Payoneer Debit Card or Skrill in Nigeria” and not “How to receive PayPal Money in Nigeria Skrill”
It is because some people may like to close their PayPal account and wonder the easiest platform to do the wipe.
Hahahaha …apologies if I sound confusing, I’m just trying to satisfy many minds.
The fact on the ground
PayPal is now difficult for Nigerians to withdraw their money online since the dollar challenges in the country.
Using Payoneer debit card is now one of the rescue missions if you wish to close down your PayPal account and move to another platform that allows Nigerians to subscribe.
I will not advise you to close down anyway.
Payoneer comes handy for Nigerians to withdraw at this trying time.
At the moment
If you’re in Nigeria and you have a PayPal account, you could probably be:
- having problems with withdrawal from your PayPal

A big issue
This development that started with the dollar challenges is a big problem for many online money makers and Nigerian Merchants.

This is because PayPal does not allow Nigerian residents and whose account was opened in the country withdraw fund from their local banks.
PayPal placed IP address restrictions on Nigerians who wants to withdraw from the PayPal account. Therefore, a Nigerian resident can’t withdraw while at home.
Nigerians who have initially opened their PayPal account with United States billing address or an overseas address seems not to have same problem while abroad.
It is still possible to do this while in Nigeria only if you have relatives abroad or you do reside outside too for some reasons.
Due to increased awareness and availability of new companies, it is now possible to withdraw your funds from PayPal using other methods.
